Waxwings (a species of bird) are eating fermented berries, getting drunk, and then flying into huge windows at a Swedish university-- and die. Thousands have persished.

Correction: Thousands have gathered and about 50 died so far. Also a mention of an elk or something that got drunk from fermented apples...so if the liquor store is closed, we know where to go.
